In a World Cup of thrills and spills, possibly the most iconic – and definitely most shocking – moment so far occurred when Liverpool striker Luis Suarez attempted to bite a chunk out of the shoulder of Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini in Uruguay’s crunch tie with the Italians.
While for many in football it isn’t considered a laughing matter, a handful of lucky Scandinavian punters will be laughing all the way to the bank this morning after online bookmaker, Betsafe, paid out at 175-1 on Suarez biting during the game.
This lucky punter bagged a cool £500 from a measly £3 bet (Kroner-Pound conversion).

The Uruguayan has been praised all season long for the character ‘reformation’ to go along with his consistently outstanding performances in the Premier League. With this being the third similar incident in Suarez’s career, it just goes to show that leopards truly cannot change their spots, no matter how regularly they score goals.
